Restoring landscapes : the authenticity problem

The managed landscape. Special issue

Description :
Philosophical concerns about restoring landscapes often revolve around two, connected, issues. First is the idea that a restored lanscape, even if it is a perfect replica, has lost some of its value. The second problem highlighted in philosophical debates is that the greater the success of restoration projects, the more threatened natural landscapes become. The A. discusses two opposing potential responses to these claims : that humans are part of nature and thus cannot be an alien dominating force outside of nature; and that nature is itself a social construct.
